Watch - Glenn Beck's Prophecy with Trump as Nominee: 'You Will Never Have Another Republican President Ever Again'

Trump is now the presumed GOP nominee. And it's sour grapes moment for some of the right-wingers who put it all on the line for Ted Cruz. Especially Glenn Beck.


“Donald Trump is the face of the GOP. That makes us crony-capitalists, wafflers, racists, big government guys, you name it. Well, I’m none of those things, so I can’t say that these are my friends," said Glenn Beck, according to Right Wing Watch.  

"I don’t want my children to look at that man and say ‘that’s my president,’" Beck announced, having been 'all in for Cruz' until his beloved candidate of choice dropped out of the race Tuesday.

"I will not endorse it. I will not tolerate it. And I refuse to have my children think that [I did]," Beck added. 

Trump has alienated many groups - including Hispanics - which represent America's fastest growing population. Beck doubts Trump will build his proposed wall at the Southern border - and promises to personally issue an apology if he does. But he also believes Trump's negatives with those voters has permanently ruined the party's chances for the presidency: 

"Because Donald trump is the GOP candidate - and I believe Hillary Clinton is you win because of this - you will never elect another GOP person to high office ever again. Because you are now going to have Hillary Clinton legalize as many voters as you can, the GOP is going to be completely racist, whether it’s true or not, because of Donald Trump, you will never have another Republican president ever again," prophesized Beck.

RNC Chair Reince Priebus is so determined to unify the factions within the right wing that he arranged a meeting next week to hear Beck's views. "I can’t help [him], but I’m interested in what he has to say," admitted Beck.
